Hey all, been lurking on the forums for awhile and finally needed some help from what has looked to be a great community.
Anyways, I started my first grow in a 3x3 tent. Started 3 autoflowers, I’m now almost 4 weeks in. Everything going pretty smoothly. Plants were doing amazing. Since it’s my first time and none of my friends have really grown I’ve been pretty thorough and constant in my reading. Always looking for problems even when they don’t exist.
So… go to transplant 3 plants from a 1 gallon ceramic pot to a 5 gallon mesh pot or whatever they’re called. These plants gave me no indication of being root bound. It had just seemed like time.
Feeling a bit under the weather yesterday but did the biggest plant because I didn’t want to risk it. I’d do the other two today. Do the first one and it’s root bound as hell. Can’t get it out the pots. Find a way to get it out, cut off less than a 3rd. Gently untangled them and move it. This plant is doing great so far today. Looking a lil healthier. I thought it looked a bit droopy for the first time yesterday so that’s also why I wanted to take precautions.
So now I’m like shit, I gotta go at least do my 2nd smallest plant, and that had the same issue. Not quite as bad. Leaves were nice lush green Not sagging at all yesterday. I did a little of the same to it with the root bound area and now one set of leaves are lightly brown around the tips.
Wondering if anyone has any advice on rescitating it, or is it maybe just transplant shock?
Probably a goner?
